Reflexology

Reflexology is the physical act of applying pressure to the feet and hands with specific thumb, finger and hand techniques It is based on a system of zones and reflex areas that reflect an image of the body on the feet and hands with a premise that such work effects a physical change to the body.”

What is reflexology?

Reflexology is a non-invasive holistic therapy that has been practiced for over 5000 years. By applying pressure to the reflex points on the hands and/or feet, the blood circulation is improved, the body relaxes and organs and glands become balanced. Doctors agree that over 75% of our health problems can be linked to nervous stress and tension. Reflexology is fantastic for relaxing and clearing these blockages.

Reflexology is not a beauty therapy; it is a clinical treatment with proven results.   Clients sit in a Lafuma recliner chair and the treatment starts with foot relaxation exercises and is completed with a foot massage. Reflexology is totally safe for people of all ages, from babies to the elderly. It is widely accepted in the UK and recognised by the NHS, many GP’s and hospices.

Reflexology, fertility and childbirth

An increasing number of women are turning to reflexology to help them with many aspects of pregnancy and childbirth. Zoe is trained and qualified as a Susanne Enzer Maternity specialist providing support from conception through to the post natal period.

Because the soles of the feet are like a mini map of the inside of the body they link to our inner organs and systems, including the fallopian tubes and ovaries. Some points on the foot are associated with a woman's egg production and by manipulating these areas reflexologists claim they can correct the imbalances which can hamper pregnancy.

Likewise reflexology can help with inducing labour as pinpointing the correct pressure points of the feet will stimulate the uterus to contract and can help get things started. Zoë has helped many women through their pregnancies and now receives regular referrals from local midwives.

What does it cost?
